Art exhibit to support Gallegos campaign

[From the campaign to re-elect Paul Gallegos]

“Art and Politics Do Mix”

Noted watercolorist Alan Sanborn is showing his support for the re-election of District Attorney Paul Gallegos by staging his latest art exhibit in conjunction with and immediately following Gallegos’ campaign kickoff rally on Thursday, September 16th.

Both the district attorney’s campaign launch at 5:30 p.m.and the artist’s reception for Sanborn’s showing of original paintings starting at 6 p.m. will take place at the 321 Gallegos Gallery at 321 Third St. in Old Town Eureka. Refreshments will be served.

The pairing of the artist and the attorney makes sense to both of them since Sanborn’s work celebrates the very beauty and outdoor life of Humboldt County that first attracted Gallegos and his family to settle here. As district attorney, Gallegos recently won important protections for

seniors in the Skilled Healthcare Group lawsuit, which will now require the out-of-town corporate owners of Humboldt County facilities Granada, Seaview, Pacific and Eureka Healthcare and Rehab, and St. Luke Healthcare Center, to meet the state’s required minimum nurse-to-patient ratio.

To find out more about Gallegos, or to donate or volunteer, go to www.votepaul.org or call 442.9600. Sanborn’s pastoral watercolors are featured locally in many venues, as well as on-line at www.alansanbornart.com. His exhibit will run through November 2nd.

    Gallegos won… Sure, why not? I clearly remember him in court every day, fighting for the old folks, the poor, the downtrodden…

    If he were against the end of prohibition he sould be voted out but I’ll take “middle of the road” at least!

    Traffic is up. So I know you are still interested. I’ll leave the info here, and will post new articles as they come up, but the blog is effectively shut down.

    I will be devoting my energies, along with other volunteers, to helping Allison Jackson in her campaign to replace Paul Gallegos.

    It is imperative that we elect a new DA.

    This has nothing to do with the above subject.
    I received what is suspose to be a random US Census
    questionaire. It delves into your income and many
    very personal things. I mailed this back early in
    September. They are phoning and harrassing me saying
    they never received it. Now they want to take the
    information over the phone. The fine for not filling
    it out is $5,000. Has anyone else received one of
    these 28 page forms?

    Don’t give ANY information over the phone. Sounds like a scam. Contact the local census office,or if they’ve shut down, go to their website. You might also contact Mike Thompson’s office for assistance.

    This doesn’t make any sense to me however.

    It sounds like Jackson would take EVERYONE who gets arrested to trial, wasting huge amounts of money and court time. She would do this regardless of whether the evidence to convict was present. That wastes even more court time. Part of the DA’s job is to determine which cases have at least a reasonable chance to get a conviction. When evidence or chances are doubtful, often a plea bargain will accomplish almost the same ends.
    Gallegos has used his best judgement. Often people who do not know what evidence is available and allowable complain about plea bargains. They are used when it is somewhat doubtful a conviction will result. Hey, better a plea bargain than a ‘not guilty’ when the Perp did it.
    Gallegos is doing a good job and deserves our support.

    No, no, tell us it’s not true. No more Rose bolgs? Not even the blog about hating all Muslims and stoping the building of Mosques in America!?!!

    Well at least we know that Allison Jackson’s campaign is in good hands!

    I just checked out that blog. It’s fiction, right? Parody? Twisted humor? No? Oh, well. Let’s hear it for the First Amendment.

    Alan Sanbourn supports his candidate with…art and beauty. Rose? *shakes head*
